Instructional Focus: The unit begins by addressing the issues America faced following WWI. We then move on to concentrate on the three republican presidents of the 1920s, examining their policies and how they favored the growth of business and prosperity in the 1920s. Attention should also be paid as to how some of these policies may have ultimately led to the Great Depression. Other factors that led to the prosperity of the 1920s should be examined such as the rise of the automobile, more efficient production techniques, and the age of mass consumption. Special attention also needs to be paid in this unit to conflicting values in the 1920s, such as conservatism v. liberalism, rural v. urban, religion v. science. Many social and cultural changes occurred in America during the 1920s and these changes to women, African-Americans, and on the cultural landscape should be explored. This is a great opportunity to incorporate music, such as “Give my regards to Broadway”, and present samples of some of the poems of writers such as, Langston Hughes, or short excerpts from novels such as, A Farewell to Arms by Hemingway, also tie it into the Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald which many juniors have read in their English classes.
